For over 40 years, Los Huracanes del Norte has been known as one of the most influential norteño groups. Now, you can see them live at Inn of the Mountain Gods on Friday, January 10.
The band started in 1969 in the state of Michoacán by three brothers, Heraclio, Jesús and Francisco García. They were later joined by Asunción Rubalcava and called themselves Los Cuatro del Norte. In 1972, a fourth García brother, Guadalupe, joined the band and wrote the band’s first hit single “Corrido de Daniel Treviño.” However, their big breakthrough came in 1978 with the release of the album “La Musiquera,” which became their first gold record.
Throughout the mid-90s, the popularity of regional Mexican music began to expand, and Los Huracanes del Norte found themselves regularly playing for audiences of 10,000 to 30,000 fans. Every one of their original releases from the late 90s to 2006 earned a spot on the Billboard’s regional Mexican category’s Top Ten or Latin Albums charts.
Since then, Los Huracanes del Norte has continued to release hit songs and sell out transcontinental tours. Their 2010 album “En Vivo Desde Monterrey” landed them the #8 spot on the Mexican Regional chart and their following album, “Soy Mexicana,” earned a #11 spot. Their 2012 album “Como Un Huracan” peaked the charts at #7 and in 2015 their self-titled album made #16 on the Latin Albums charts.
